Two week holiday 22nd Sept with in laws 70s ,sister 60s and 89 yr old mother.Having read previous reviews of unfriendly staff and strange AI rules ,was a little nervous even though had stayed here in 2005 as a saga accompanying person and thought it was an ok hotel. Had an initial problem with the allocation of rooms which was sorted very quickly by t
he lovely man on reception ,who apologised profusely even though it was the agents fault ,not the hotel.Restaurant staff were all very friendly & polite ,from the chefs who made the breakfast eggs and pancakes to the ones on the grill in the evening.I would agree that the food varied from 2star to 4star and there was tinned fruit but there was also fresh pineapple ,melon ,bananas,apples ,oranges & nectarines as well as yoghurt, diet & full fat ,strawberry & vanilla /chocolate ice cream every day .Everything you could want on a salad ,a good variety of cheeses ,tasty fresh cooked pizza and though I am not a fish person ,on family recommendation I tried some from the grill one night and thoroughly enjoyed it.I would say 2 nights out of fourteen there was nothing for a main evening meal that proved appetising. The wine or water rule in the dining room was frustrating as I don't drink wine but lived with it .
The bar staff were extremely friendly & gave a personal service ,couldn't fault them.Outdoor pool area was very nice ,handrails were lethal for anyone needing them though & to have to pay to use indoor facilities at an AI hotel, I have never heard of & I have stayed in plenty.Entertainment was dire and too loud with the exception of Sunday which was great , Monday not bad & the dancers excellent.
Rooms were good quality & kept spotless with toiletries replenished daily.
Ideal proximity to the beach,nice walk to town ,bus service limited as was classed as winter schedule but had days to Javea ,Moraira and Albir. All in all a very nice hotel and would recommend to anyone 50 plus looking for a relaxing holiday.
